Robin Roberts MDS disease diagnose confessed
Robin Roberts revealed that she is battling MDS, or myelodysplastic syndrome, a disease of the blood and bone marrow.
“My doctors tell me I’m going to beat this — and I know it’s true. Bottom line: I’ve been living with this diagnosis for awhile and will continue to anchor GMA. I love what I do and the people with whom I do it. Along with my faith, family and friends, all of you at ABC News give me the motivation and energy to face this challenge”, she wrote on her blog.
The 51-year-old ‘Good Morning America’ anchor said she will begin pre-treatment. Later this year she will undergo marrow transplant. The transplant will be provided by her sister.
Five years ago, Roberts was successfully treated for breast cancer.
Meanwhile, she will go on with her work at ‘Good Morning America’. “I’ll be right here every day. When I miss a day here or there, I’m fortunate that some very talented friends at ABC News will fill-in. When I undergo the transplant later this year, I’ll miss a chunk of time”, she added.
Roberts joined ‘Good Morning America’ as a reporter, in 1995.
